Landscaping in Alaska
The worldwide bulb trade has successfully landed another load of packaged glee on our doorsteps, and all the gardeners are saying "Hurrah." There is no other moment so awaited in the gardening year as this, the arrival of the year's first tulip bulbs. Time bombs of color and delight, they await the burying process to begin their long slow climb into bloom.

loss, grief, healing & living well
Last fall I signed up to take Hospice and Home Care of Juneau's training to become a hospice volunteer because I believe in the philosophy and goals of hospice and wanted to find a way to contribute to the work of this wonderful organization. Soon after completing the class, I learned how valuable the training can also be in preparing us for dealing with the deaths of loved ones in our own families.

Selling violence to kids
The following editorial appeared in today's Washington Post: When it comes to children, movies and violence, it's always been hard to tell whether the H stands for Hollywood or Hypocrisy. You have the studios and recording companies piously invoking their cultural integrity and First Amendment rights as they peddle stuff with no discernible redeeming virtues. You have the movie theater chains pretending they can't control the teens who buy tickets to PG-rated films at the multiplex and then stroll in to watch R-rated movies. And you have the politicians, like Al Gore, whose sensibilities on the matter seem to depend on whether the day is devoted primarily to soliciting money from the moguls or votes from everyone else.

U.S. flag, like the cross, is sacred
